BRITISH MOTORCYCLES OF THE 1940s and '50s, a Shire transport history book, by Mick Walker, new.

After VE Day in 1945 the British population returned enthusiastically to the road, but the cost and scarcity of both vehicles and fuel led to the post-war scene being dominated by motorcycles, most of them ex-military machines. British industry, meanwhile, was exhorted to 'export or die', and until well into the 1950s the majority of new British bikes were sold abroad. During this period, the industry - the largest and most important in the world - continued to develop new and exciting machines. With help from a wealth of archive photos and classic advertising material, this Shire book tells the story of these British bikes and conjures for the reader the golden age of the industry that they represent. Illustrated mostly in colour photos with some black/white photos. A list of suggested further reading and related places to visit in Britain is at the back of the book.

Small specialist softcover, published by Shire Publications, UK, 2014, 64-pages, indexed, new.
